Current LIS Humberto Delgado (ex Portela) airport is facing growing traffic with a new record last year of 22,4 million passengers (a 11.7% increase from 2015). Seems like an MoU was signed on 16 Feb 2017 between Portuguese Government and ANA : Aeroportos de Portugal, (Vinci's subsidiary not to be confused with All Nippon Airways).
Two major decisions : building a complementary airport and construction of a new Terminal at LIS
With the airport at Portela encircled by buildings and motorways, Minister Marques said the solution is to build a new unit at Montijo just south of the Tagus River, along with an additional runway. The new airport to serve the Lisbon region, will be located some 42 km east of the city center on the South bank of the river Tagus. The site is currently used by the Portuguese Armed Forces.
“This could happen in 2019”, predicted Minister Pedro Marques, in an interview with business daily Negócios. A riverboat link between the Portuguese capital and Montijo is also currently on the drawing board, which will boost transport connections to Lisbon, which are currently restricted to the Vasco da Gama bridge.
Existing facilities will nonetheless be expanded :
Despite already aiming to spend 250 million euros at a complementary airport at Montijo south of the Tagus, ANA is reported by Diário de Notícias to have set aside 400 million euros for a new terminal in Lisbon dedicated to international flights.
The new satellite terminal is expected to be built as an island between runways and will be linked to the main terminal building by means of a tunnel
It seems Lisbon will receive a lot of new airport infrastructure in the 2020s...
